                         The Introduction of Paperless Drywall

  Mold resistant drywall is one of the better innovations in the often moribund world of drywall technology. Instead of the traditional paper facing for the inner slabs of gypsum, fiberglass mat is substituted. The main benefit of mold resistant drywall is that moisture doesn’t have the chance to feed on the organic materials which comprise paper-backed drywall. The greatest asset of this type of drywall is its mold-resistant qualities. In addition to the fiberglass being moisture resistant, the gypsum core is also water resistant. There have been numerous problems with mold and mildew in homes in the past decade, and paperless drywall was developed to help prevent the spread of mold.

  Paperless drywall can be used in any location that you would use standard drywall and can be finished with the same techniques. It works especially well in bathrooms, basements, and any other rooms with higher moisture content.
